Our new Physical Activity Programme for females has now begun and its proving to be a hit!

Active Ewe, which aims to offer free fitness to females across the city, was launched 2 weeks ago and we have already seen over 50 women sign up and begin to access the sessions.


Following a session, one participant said: “The sessions I’ve been to have been great, I’ve not enjoyed exercise or been this active since I was a teenager.”

Sessions take place on a weekly basis in venues across Derby, since its launch we have already added Badminton to the programme due to demand, which will link in with our Male ‘Active Supporters Programme’.

Another participant said: “Sessions are really enjoyable and its good we can now begin to get fit together as a family.” 

The key take home message from the programme is that it’s inclusive to every woman’s needs. No matter what your ability Active Ewe looks to ease you in and add a fun social aspect to sessions.

After a DanceFit session, one of our participants commented: “It was accommodating and inclusive I didn’t realise exercise could be this fun!”
